Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Lake Toba in Indonesia is a volcanic lake created on the place of, what is thought to be, the largest volcanic eruption that has occurred on Earth over the past twenty five million years, with tremendous consequences manifested through major climate change and even the change in the genetic set of human beings.
    The composition invokes the movement and energy of volcanic activity, but it is also inspired by ventures which, with their intensity, constructively change the spiritual and material environment. It is based on the process of decomposing of orchestral setting of the chords from the end of Musorgsky's Picture from the Exhibition orchestrated by Morris Ravel.
